Drowning by Numbers

One of the highlights in the oeuvre of Peter Greenaway (‘The Cook, the Thief…’, ‘Pillow Book’). ‘Drowning by numbers’ is in many aspects a remarkable movie. It’s the captivating story of three women, who each have their own way to kill their men. A film full of anecdotes, things worth knowing, bizarre games and peculiar insects. Everything is filmed with a lot of feeling for art and perfection. If you watch it often you’ll notice the subtle incorporating of the numbers 1 to 100. And the beautiful soundtrack of Michael Nyman must also be mentioned. Absolute a must and now finally on dvd (Australian import).
